The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. Please keep all submissions PG13: full or partial nudity is prohibited. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check.

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShack, Deviant Art or whatever);Do not use Photobucket.

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name;
  • No copyrighted characters please – they will be deleted.
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.

Please make the link go directly to the image (like this) and not to a hosting jump page (like this).

This contest will close at 9am Eastern on Sunday, February 18th.

    There are subtle differences…

    Both are combination creatures, like a minotaur. Hope the following links help.

    Happy machining.

    So some sources say the Fauns are more Goatlike, and others say the Satyrs are more Goatlike… And the ones that look less goatlike seem to look more like Centaurs? 😀
    How very helpful!
    Good luck with this one!

    For heaven’s sake it’s an art contest where people have the chance to win absolutely nothing. Just have fun with it.

    From the second link for those still bent out of shape…

    Basically fauns and satyrs are both combination creatures having the torso of a human and lower half of a goat. Usually the head will have horns or at least lumps resembling horns. Often a faun will have the torso of a young man. The hair on his chest is finer and more sparse. The satyr has dark thick chest hair. His torso is muscular and his shoulders broader like a more mature man.

    Both creatures have beards. The faun has a scruffy thin little beard that looks like the first try of a teenage boy growing his first goatee. The satyr has a full dark beard associated more with an older more experienced man. Fauns are a little foolish but satyrs are more intelligent. Satyrs are gluttons while fauns just want to have fun.

    When did I say i was bent out of shape? I made a perfectly innocuous comment. Basically either one is whatever you want it to be.

    It was not directed to your comment. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
